  • Hygiene: Helping children wash their hands and use tissues or paper towels properly, reminding them to cover their mouths when coughing, and to keep things out of their mouth.
  • Reinforce proper behavior: Teach children to share and play nicely or redirecting their focus if there is an argument.
  • Comfort children when they are upset or crying by hugging, holding or rocking them.

Volunteers can choose any of our of Early Head Start locations.

Mission Statement

Mission: Supporting and educating families and young children through quality early learning, health and family services. Vision: All families and children reach their full potential.

Description

Kids Incorporated of the Big Bend is the only community-based organization providing quality, comprehensive services and shaping futures of at-risk families with children ages 0-3 and pregnant women in Jefferson, Leon & Madison counties, Florida.

Founded in 1972 by the late Budd Bell, a community volunteer with a master's in social work, Budd recognized the need for affordable, high quality early learning programs for families with young children. Our name and our services have evolved over the years, but one constant remains: to best serve a child, we must serve the family.
